    Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Selected for summer internship. No interview required -- applied through email and was offered the position as a result of school work previously completed on an associated project. Internship paid about a hundred dollars per week, which was not bad considering it was just an internship, although it would have been nice to be paid more considering the engineering work involved.

    Assistant Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Drexel University.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume/cover letter online, called in for in-person interview with team and a few weeks later, an in-person interview with the rest of the department. Less than a week after the second interview, I was offered the position.
    HR department was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process.
    From applying for job online to receiving offer, it was about two months.

    Interview Questions
    • Mainly questions about why I'd like to work there and questions regarding my most recent position experience. A few fun and out-of-the-box questions, which weren't super difficult, but involved thinking creatively (something required in the position every day anyway)
      Not the typical "what's your biggest weakness" sort of thing
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not too much of a change from initial offer, but friendly about it (no hardball/jerk stuff going on)
